"Turn of the Century" as written by and Neil M/herrema Hagerty....
If you hand me my cape
And my dog had a cane

Don't mind the rain
We gotta go downtown
Bulletin board says it starts today
Clear space and open way

So get me my coat and we'll go down
I know you're just a kid
Doesn't matter what you did up to now
Give me my coat, we'll go down

I say it's gonna be
Like a big lie on TV
But don't believe the things you don't see
Don't believe me

I know there won't be anyone asking why we're there
We don't need no tickets
Everyone will just let us
Stare

'Cause they've made their choices just like me
And there're things they won't have to see
We can just sit and breathe
With those trees

I say their thoughts are flashing in quick
But they move so slow 'cause their minds are so thick
And if we want we can punch into their heads
Feel the wheels moving and know they go on
Perpetually

So bring me my coat and we'll go down
Go sit in the square
Where the prisons used to be
Just sit around
Get our balance in this new gravity

Won't have to be some useless kick
Don't enjoy choices so bleak
Twist it all upside down

So give me my coat, little sister,
And I'll bring the car around
Give me my coat, little sister,
And I'll bring the car around

    General Commentjust i should post the official lyrics from the old website:


    If you hand me my cape and my dog-headed cane
    Don't mind the rain, we gotta go downtown
    Bulletin board says it starts today
    Clear space and an open way
    So give me my coat and we'll go down
    I know you're just a kid
    Doesn't matter what you did up 'til now
    Give me my coat and we'll go down
    I say it's gonna be like a big live TV
    But don't believe the things you don't see
    Don't believe me
    I know there won't be anyone asking why we're there
    We don't need no tickets
    Everyone will just let us stare
    They made their choices just like me
    And there's things they won't have to see
    We can just sit and breathe with the trees
    I say their thoughts are flashing and quick
    But they move so slow cuz their minds are so thick
    And if we want we can punch into their heads
    Feel the wheels moving, we know they'll go on perpetually
    So bring me my coat and we'll go downtown
    Go sit in the square where the prisons used to be, just sit around
    Get our balance in this new gravity
    You won't have to be some useless kid
    The only choices so bleak, twisted all upside down
    So get me my coat little sister and I'll bring the car around
